PLANIT GSO Vision Statement Input Needed

Post Date:12/04/2018 2:00 PM

How important are vision statements for municipal projects/plans? According to Planning Department staff, getting the wording and phraseology just right will pave a clearer roadway to creating a Comprehensive Plan sure to lead to the best Greensboro possible for everyone.

Benjamin Planit GSO Survey Station

To help craft the most effective vision statement, the City has set up input stations at three library branches for you to share your thoughts about the current draft version of the statement.

They are located at:

  • Blanche S. Benjamin Branch Library, 1530 Benjamin Parkway
  • Kathleen Clay Edwards Family Library, 1420 Price Park Rd.
  • McGirt-Horton Branch Library, 2501 Phillips Ave.

The input stations, shown to the right, will remain in the branches through Friday, December 21.

Your input will be part of PLANIT GSO, a multi-phased process to help City staff create a new Comprehensive Plan using residents' thoughts and ideas to do so. A comprehensive plan establishes a vision for the future of a city and then is used as a road map to guide a municipality's investments, development and growth. The City's current Comprehensive Plan is 15-years-old.

So far, previous public comments have helped Planning Department staff, who are spearheading PLANIT GSO, come up with proposed goal topics for the new Comprehensive Plan. And now, your comments will help with the vision statement. 

The next phase of PLANIT GSO is to use the input to finalize the goals and vision statement, which will then lead to creating strategies and policies for accomplishing the goals and vision. This would be the City's new Comprehensive Plan.
